The production for Nelson and the Magic Cauldron started two years ago. With a little help by a Kickstarter campaign. So Manuel Schenk began development on the game, painting and animating all game elements by hand.

“This time, I wanted to create a Sci-Fi-Adventure”, says Schenk. “But my graphic style fits much more to fantasy. And bevor I realized it, the game was ready for playing.”
Nelson and the Magic Cauldron takes place in a fantasy setting. Where a young man called Nelson inherits a cabin from his deceased uncle Sid. Also not knowing that the uncle has a magic cauldron. So Nelson travels to the island where his uncle lived. What can not imagine, this legacy will not mean wealth but responsibility.
There are a lot of crazy characters, including dead uncle Sid, who appears as a ghost. Also the stone cold undertaker, the confused baron, a soup-cooking witch and the vegan zombies. It is a game of magic and a lot of humor with many hidden jokes about other games and movies. You know, a true homage, of course.
Nelson and the Magic Cauldron is a classic 2D Point and Click adventure that will debut on Steam. Coming out on Linux, Mac and Windows on November 22nd.
